Alumni Advice:

  1. “Start your graduate school applications NOW. It takes time to get personal statements reviewed and to ask professors to write letters of recommendation.”
  2. “Start the job search process EARLY!! It is so helpful to give yourself lots of time to discuss your options. Job searching will become your fourth (and most important) course throughout senior year. To help USE THE CAREER CENTER!! Don’t forget to enjoy every single moment in your last year of college – it will fly by!” -Caitlyn McLaren ’18
  3. “The most important things I learned from the career center were how to network using UCAN and properly communicate with professionals.” -Lauren Gibson ’17
  4. “I learned that practice makes perfect.By practicing interviews as many times as I did with the career center, I felt ready to do it in the real world.” -2015 Alum in Non-Profit Industry.  Take advantage of Mock Interview Day with real employers on 28. Sign up in Handshake or contact the Career Center to sign up: 518.388.6176.
  5. “Apply for jobs that you have the slightest interest in;you never know what you’ll learn about yourself, and you may even end up liking it. Be open minded & give things a try.”
